Garden City

Welcome to Garden City.

Adelphi University’s campus is nestled in a serene suburban community of grand houses and wide boulevards. And when you’re ready for an adventure, you’re sure to find it close by. From Long Island’s famous beaches to all Manhattan’s cultural opportunities, Garden City is the perfect home to experience the best of the New York metropolitan area.

Where do you like to go/what do you like to do in your free time (weekends/evenings after class)?

During the summer months, there are countless beachfront and waterfront destinations to take advantage of, both on the south and north shore.

All the Conveniences

With downtown Garden City just one mile from campus, you’ll have access to banks, drugstores, the local library and post office. Or take your pick of an array of services all within a couple of miles. And the Long Island Rail Road station is just four blocks away. Adelphi’s shuttle service, the Panther Express, is there to take you to the LIRR, the bus terminal and shopping malls and centers.
